Well after a long absence from posting, here are a few pics of the new house and the kids' first day of school.  But first I need to thank several people for their amazing help with moving.  A huge thank you to Spencer for driving with us all the way to Vegas.  We quite literally could not have done it without you!  Even taking on the Penske truck for a portion of the way with the boat behind it was most likely a stressful undertaking but he shouldered it like a champ.  Thank you Sara for letting him make that trip : )  Garlan's 'intervention' with Spencer in not allowing me to push through was a blessing.  Thank you for having us stay in your home to see you and your sweet family!  Brandon, Darek and their families, along with some of Kenzie's friends, and Spencer were awesome with unloading everything!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  Plus there have been several evenings that B and D spent away from their families helping me with stuff.  I really appreciate that!  Doing this move mostly without Paul has been tough sometimes but more than made up for by all the help.  And before leaving I'm so glad Shar came up to run the Color Me Rad with me and Spencer : )  It was so much fun and thank you Dal for letting her do that after a week of being gone!  Erin and Jason, we look forward to seeing you guys a lot more now that we are so much closer!  It's been fun to see Brooke a couple times recently tho : )  I truly am blessed and grateful to know such cool people and to be related to them besides!  I love you all so much it's difficult to fully express.

Ok, so there's still lots to do, boxes to unpack, furniture to buy, pictures to hang and who knows what else but at least we are here safely and getting settled.  It's a nice neighborhood and lots of people have been by to welcome us.  Tons of members here, which is great.
So, starting with the stop at G's through the move into the house, then some Color Me Rad pictures and Lockwood/Maloy family photos.  Enjoy!

I had to hurry and take the pic before she licked all that snot!  Gross!!

Cannon and one of Kenzie's friends taking a much needed food break.  This was the only time the friend stopped helping.  These guys were hard core workers!

Brandon trying to figure out what the crud.  We're only part way done!

Apparently this office furniture was pretty stinkin' heavy.

Happy posers.

Wanna-be posers.

Just plain posers.
This was totally staged cuz Spenc wanted to show off his muscles.

Ok, so Cori thinks I should be able to tell the twins apart by now.  I have a fifty-fifty chance each time and I usually get it wrong!  That's Kennedy tho : )

 Cannon, Kenz, 'the friends' and Spenc.  Looks like Cannon was still on his food break!

How cute is that?!
Our new home!

Tiny table in a large room.  May have to get something bigger?

The floor plan is all open and currently pretty bare in most rooms so I only took a couple pics inside.

 Yay for a pool! Love it, love it : )
My new freshman and seminary student!  Handsome boy!

My little seventh grader, super happy to be in a new school and have a locker!

Karliana and her fashion diva outfit.  It totally poured their first day of school : (
Whitey whites but not for long!

Just before the race started we got hugged by some large ladies who were already powdered up.
A little awkward.

Oh yeah baby!!  What a fun race.  We ran hardcore, ok only Sharla did.

Spencer seemed to forget this was a family friendly event.

Sharla looks tough but Spenc just looks special needs!  DER!!
Most recent family picture before the move.

Yes, we believe in the right to bear arms.
God bless America!

Love you guys and hope the new area is going well!  You get my package yet?  Be in touch soon.
